Buy a raffle ticket, maybe get a DNA test

Raffle tickets for DNA tests

I usually don’t post twice in one day… but this is a very good cause, and besides, it’s easy, it’s cheap and it could get you a DNA test.

Here’s the deal. There’s a newly-formed foundation called the Mixed Roots Foundation, with the purpose of helping adoptees find their roots. One of its projects is called the Filling in the GAGP Fund, and it’s a fund to help defray some of the costs of DNA testing for adoptees.

Tomorrow, it’s having a fundraiser. In San Francisco. And in the fundraiser it’s going to be raffling off a bunch of stuff including five DNA test kits — three donated by 23andMe and two donated by Family Tree DNA. You can buy the raffle tickets online and (sigh…) you don’t have to be there to win. (Even if we’d all rather be in San Francisco…)

Get the details on exactly how to get in on this from Ce Ce Moore’s blog post today at Your Genetic Genealogist.

Where else are you gonna get a chance at a DNA test for a whopping two bucks, huh? (Three chances for five bucks! Such a deal!)
